Today’s question: “Grass is for cows.” Enough said. This Czech-born American reached 8 consecutive U.S. Open finals, winning 3 of them. He won 8 Grand Slam titles in all and broke Connors’ record of most number of weeks as the top ranked player. The original “Terminator,” he played in 19 Grand Slam singles finals and reached at least one Grand Slam final for 11 consecutive years, a fantastic record made all the more poignant by his unsuccessful attempts to win the Wimbledon towards the latter half of his career. Who is he?
Yesterday’s answer: Isaac Bruce. One of Hakim’s touchdowns came on a punt return and three came on pass receptions. All of Bruce’s scores were on pass receptions, and they helped the Rams end a 17 game losing streak to the 49ers. The Rams won, 42-20.
